a segment whose endpoints are both on the circle and passes through the center

chord

a segment whose endpoints are both on the circle

secant

a line that intersects the circle in two points

tangent

concentric circles

have the same center and are coplanar

common tangent

tangent lines to more than one circle in one plane

thm 10-1

a tangent line is perpendicular to the radius at the point of tangency

thm 10-2
